Blogger Break!

Yes, I am taking a blogger break! For the month on January, my family will not be using the computer *at all*! I think it's going to be hard at first, but it's good for us! =) So, I probably won't be posting any more till the beginning of February. Kind of a bad time for me to start up a new blog, huh?

I also wanted to share a New Year's Resolution with you. I don't usually do resolutions, but this year I am doing one: I want to read through my Bible in a year. I know, I can't believe that I haven't done that yet, but I am going to try! My whole family (that is, all the readers in the family ;) are going to do it also! I know it's going to be a huge help having all the support and everyone doing it with me!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, God bless you!

Welcome to my blog!

Hi! I'm Shamarah Sunshine :) Welcome to my *brand new* blog!!! I've blogged before in the past, but I wanted to start a new blog for a while for several reasons.

My goal for this blog is to honor Christ is everything. That doesn't mean that every single post will be Biblical-related, or that I'll have Scripture everywhere. Rather, like I said, my ultimate goal is to glorify God- to point people toward Him, to praise Him, to encourage others, ect. I know I'm going to end up with random posts, and probably some that don't mean much to you, my readers. In the process you will also learn a lot about me! :)

To start out with, I'll tell you a little about myself, which you can also read about in my profile :) First, and most importantly, I LOVE JESUS!!! I want to be more like Him, I love reading my Bible and spending time with my Lord. I also love to sing, especially hymns, but I'll own that I'm not much good at singing! ;)
I enjoy spending time with my large family, and we have lots of fun conversations together!
I'm eighteen years old, and I graduated last year. I love the color pink, I love Jersey cows (although I have never owned one, I have had the privilege of caring for one :) and chickens and farms, especially when they have a white picket fence and a big, red barn!
I enjoy watching movies, and writing letters, I like roses, and chocolate, playing piano, and reading, among many other things! :)
I love Israel, and it would be a dream come true for me to be able to visit Israel- especially Jerusalem, someday!!! I also would love to go on a mission's trip, anywhere.
Someday, if the Lord is willing, I want to get married to a godly man, have lots of darling children, homeschool them and teach them in the way of the Lord!

Also, since it will only take a minute, I'd like to share my testimony with you. I just copied it from my old blog! :)

I am very thankful that I am being raised in a Christian home. Because of this, I can't remember a time when I wasn't a Christian, I have always wanted to serve Jesus. I don't remember an exact time or date when the Lord saved me, but I remember at a young age wanting to read His Word, and grow in Christ. I am so thankful that Jesus chose to save me when I was young!
Actually, this last year (then summer of 2009) I was struggling with not having an "exciting" testimony. Then this summer at a church we were visiting, the pastor was preaching about that exact thing! It made me realize that it isn't just when or how you came to know the Lord, it's your daily walk with Christ that is your testimony!
I also want to share my favorite verse with you! It is so beautiful ♥
"I love the LORD, for He has saved my soul from death, my eyes from tears, and my feet from falling!"
Psalms 116:8
